In Texas, insurance companies owe legal duties to their policyholders under state law, which are designed to ensure claims are promptly and fairly resolved. Many insurance companies deny or delay legitimate claims as part of their normal operating practice. An insurance company that breaches their legal duties can owe the policyholder financial damages – including statutory penalties and attorney’s fees – beyond what is owed under the terms of the insurance policy.

Hailstorm Insurance Claims
Hail is the natural disaster that causes the most damage to homes and cars across the nation. Hailstorms can severely damage your property by compromising roofing and/or siding and cause problems long after the storm is over. Since hailstorms in Texas have increased in both frequency and severity, insurance companies have been trying to mitigate their losses by underpaying or denying many hail claims. If your hailstorm claims have been mishandled by an insurance provider who has minimized the damage your property has suffered, you should contact a skilled Texas hail damage attorney.
Wind Damage Insurance Claims
The windstorm insurance claims lawyers of Minces Rankin represent individuals that have suffered property damage as the result of severe weather. We handle property damage claims stemming from gale force winds, wind driven rains, and flooding. The legal landscape surrounding these claims is complicated, however, as changes to the Texas Insurance Code made it easier to underpay or deny windstorm claims. If you are struggling to obtain your rightful payment from your insurance provider following a severe storm, our law firm is ready to hear from you.
